Customer Question

Hello I have developed a headless cyst on my face (left cheek) the pressure kept building up after days and yesterday I had decided to poke it with a needle to release some pressure and I got a little bit out however I noticed that a lot is still in there much deeper than I I could poke with a needle. Now today morning I have discovered that the area has turned black and I am getting concerned. I am familiar with my skin easily developing dark melanin spots after trauma but I am not sure if it is the same and I can still feel pressure
JA: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?
Customer: I have a fair amount of trouble with Pimples and acne on my face however lately the bigger issue is the hyperpigmentation caused by previous pimple trauma
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I would really like to know how to fix hyperpigmentation caused by trauma on my face and what I should do about the blind cyst on my cheek which since yesterday has now also developed trauma with beginning signs of hyperpigmentation. Thank you very much.

I have tried to contact you but you have not responded. I would advise that you try to get hold of your GP or try your local Urgent Care Centre for assistance. Many thanks
